Being a relatively young organization, POLA has initiated and successfully implemented a project aimed at translating and producing information materials. The project was made possible with the support of the British Embassy and Vilnius Old Town Rotary Club. For the translation of the “A Parent’s Guide to Children’s Cancer’”and “Understanding Cancer Of Unknown Primary” publications from English to Lithuanian, a cooperation agreement was signed with a British organisation Macmillan Cancer Support.
In June 2014, in the Parliament of Northern Ireland POLA and Cancer Choices, an NGO from Northern Ireland, presented results of their successful cooperation: 11 bilingual leaflets on cancer prevention, which were prepared on the basis of Cancer Research UK’s publications. We highly appreciate our cooperation with major British NGOs.
Prepared for the general public POLA educational publications focus on risk factors that significantly increase the likelihood of developing cancer, as well as on the prevention of the most common cancer types. Information materials were distributed among POLA members and across cancer information centres in Lithuania, where they are available free of charge to all cancer patients and their families.
For publications in Lithuanian, please see here.
English versions of the publications are available
